Parents should pay their costs
« on: June 21, 2008, 11:14:42 PM »
This one is bound to raise some eyebrowes.....he it goes

The Canadian Labour Congress (CLC) released a "report card" on how well it thinks the provinces are doing in the area of child care, and it rates several provinces, including New Brunswick, low for having a system that largely leaves it to parents to pay for the services they need.

This is perhaps a predictable position from the ideologically leftist CLC but it also reflects a wider such position taken by many in our society. Indeed, many in our society seem to have come to the conclusion that we need to pay people to raise their children instead of it being a parental responsibility; that all citizens should fork over their money to subsidize the raising of children even when the parents have the income to pay themselves.
